• "Engaging . . . The “iconic” building is the most obvious architectural phenomenon of our age yet, somehow, no one has quite done what Tom Dyckhoff does with The Age of Spectacle, which is to tell its story clearly and plainly."

    Rowan Moore, Observer
  • "Unusually accessible [and] well argued."

    Evening Standard
  • "A great storyteller . . . you would be hard pushed to find a more knowledgeable or entertaining [guide]"

  • "First class. Finally, a book that nails the iconic movement – Tom Dyckhoff’s The Age of Spectacle is the book that I wish I had written."

    Simon Jenkins
  • "Laced with irony and personal anecdote . . . A knowledgeable guide . . . There's no lack of wit or perceptive analysis in the book."
